's important. >> i just wanted to pursue your observation that this wasn't really an al qaeda type bomb. wasn't there a memo from them in 2003, precisely on how to build essentially a home made bomb using pressure cookers and nails and that was deployed in india and pakistan? >> it has been used before. and al qaeda has talked about that. but it's also a widely available bomb-making instructions on the internet. and it's been used by nonal qaeda groups, as well. i certainly don't want to rule out an al qaeda-inspired plot here. i just don't think that it points enough in that direction that we should rule out the other possibilities of some sort of domestic terrorism. >> mr. forest, the boston police have labeled this the most complex crime boston has ever had. why is that? how do you read that? what are they telling us? >> well, the scene is simply massive, a 12 block square area with cars. so it's taking them a long time to collect the data they need, the proverbial dots so they can look at all of those dots, all of that video, all of the physical evidence, all of the intelligence reporting
ott your water is because of this. the summer of 2006, a group of terrorists with links to al-qaeda planned to board a bunch of different planes at hea heathrow in london. to be flying from there to the united states and the way these guys were going to bomb the planes was by bringing soda bottles on board those planes that looked like they contained just soda or water, but in fact, they contained hydrogen peroxide and the other components needed to make bombs. the heathrow guys got caught before they did it, but it is now thanks to them that we have to buy humiliatingly tiny toiletries like this hair goo, right? it's not just security in this case. it's for a reason. hydrogen based bombs. the london bombings of 2005, those were al-qaeda linked terrorists and those were hydrogen peroxide based bombs. those killed 52 people. four years later, there was an american copy cat. in 2009, a guy tried to buy a bunch of hydrogen peroxide from beauty stores near aurora, colorado. it led to the arrest of this guy. he was going to do it in new york instead. on the subway. again, his plan was hy
in al qaeda and the overall islamist movement, and we don't know are there other explosives out there? where do they get the radicalism? are there mosques, imams he's meeting with? who did his brother meet be when he was in chechnya? these are only questions that can be obtained if he does not get his miranda rights. even though, there's the public safety exception. that's going to expire in 48 hours, and after that, he can lawyer up and refuse to speak. right now is the only opportunity to go into the treasure trove of information that only he has. >> excuse me, congressman. i do want to get to the intelligence because i know you both have been briefed by the administration this week. senator feinstein, what can you tell us about the plot at this point? was there any foreign involvement, and especially, what do you know, if anything, about the older brother, tamerlan's trip to russia last year? >> we do not know specifics. however, we do know there was very likely a call from russia before he went back to dagistan and chechnya asking about it. i think just conjecture would lead one t
.s. state department and the al qaeda and taliban sanctions committee two years ago. it is a well known islamic group, governor. >> what are we learning about the f.b.i.'s initial contact with the older better. >> the f.b.i. in 2011 had a request from the russian government and the f.b.i. revealed some of the details of that request. it reads in part, that the russian government had information that the older brother a follower of radical islam and strong believer and changed drastically from 20 thereto 10 and believed he was joining an unpres -- unspecified group. the f.b.i. did a review of tamerlan's background and talked to him and family members and didn't come up with terrorist act timpt. but let me explain why this saimportant now. the same year the russian government said what do you been this guy and extremist ties? we think he is a radical islamist. that is the same time this group in chechnya is declared a terrorist enity and the older brother creates a youtube site where he is posting jihadi literature and that seems to be a theme is the trip to rush quaand sort of radicaliza
gotten a pra status. we haven't been looking into people seeking asylum. al qaeda is using the process to get in, inside the system, and, you know, somebody should be held accountable. >> well, also, bob, let's just walk through for half a second, okay? there is some reporting out there, well, they don't believe whoever they is that there are any international connections. and the suspect in custody is saying it was just us, who cares what he says, right, he's got no credibility on the issue. the father says, well, when my older son came, i know he didn't see anybody, i was with him the whole time and he was sleeping until 3:00 every afternoon. but, again, he is the father, and if you look at it from where there is smoke, there is fire analysis, the russianes say we're concerned about him, enough that we're coming to you, united states, check him out because he's living where you are. he goes for an extended period to russia, in the same region where he is. there is terrorist activity going on. there is a known radicalizer who is there. when he come backs from russia, he puts a video o
close of a connection was this to al qaeda? i think those are tough questions. i hope the administration approaches this kind of with a legal mind, not a political rights. i would like to push everything in the direction of enemy combatant, if we can get there. no time for on it. considering the fact that the obama administration has done away with all kinds of intense questioning, you will need more time. this guy will be treated pretty nicely. you will need time to get the information and to test the reliability of the information. the idea of worrying about prosecuting him, would not worry about that at all. stuart: he will be found guilty. >> you can prosecute him and at least three places. stuart: supposedly do the exact opposite. can it deliver negotiate, couldn't he say, look, we will not execute you, if you tell us. >> it is a risk. we tend to mess things up, rather than advance things. [ laughter ] stuart: mayor giuliani says he is and enemy combatants. >> either way the administration can get to that result. i do not know how strong the evidence is linking him to the al qaeda e
it to when the caucuses declared war. why did they declare war against america? because they joined al qaeda. you connect the dots. >> real big issue. i wonder if we'll get help from russia. they've gone to war against one another, chechnya and russia. do you think we'll get help from russia? >> caller: remember there was a phone call between the ept and president putin. i think the russians and the government although they don't see eye to eye on certain things, iran. although the jihadist caucuses, they do. >> there's been no claim of responsibility. often we get that claim. do you think this is the future of terrorism, perhaps people don't want a drone raining down on them, if they're directed from folks overseas, do you think that's the future, where we don't get claims of responsibility? >> caller: i think we may get a recognition of this operation, a statement in the future. remember, when there was an attack against benghazi, zawahiri waited a month and a half before he claimed it. wait and see. still possible. >> walid, thanks so much for getting up early for us this morning. >>> we
: ambassador i am curious to get your view of the possibility they're not foreigners are linked to al qaeda or taliban but just the quick greeds that they look the american that doesn't mean that they are i only say that with the elements that take credit for these type of things often times within seconds and we have not seen that. does that change your view of the security threat that we have homegrown problems? >> we know we have a conspiracy because there is more than one person is not just so long walls and then you don't know how big the circle goes. were there other people to help trade them board gave them the kraft. neil: that they're all from here? >> it is still a problem. to be fighting terrorism is something you have to do at home and abroad. you don't draw a line to say we will fight it anymore because they are americans. neil: that there might be those that say we spend all this money to go after the fourth elements and terrorist cells throughout africa and we have been looking in the wrong places we don't need to do that anymore or as much of that anymore? >> the sad truth i
, the terrorists are not going to wear tin file o foil or ears. they're not going to fly the black flag of al-qaeda in their yard. the point is to assimilate, to mislead people. back in the days of the cold war, soviet spies didn't wear their politics on their sleeve. they tried to fit in. they tried it look like members of the establishment. look at aljer hiss. he was a supreme court court. his brother was a law partner. how could he be a communist spy? yet, he was. terrorists can learn that lesson. the best way to avoid scrutiny is to look like you fit in. >> we just had anna chatman, remember her, the sexy russian spy who is moscow and putin gave her an award. you raise a point about letting him back into the country, not just the first time but last year when he came back from russia. has there been an unfortunate pattern of that? egypt didn't want theli sheikh. he's convicted of being the leader of the cell that went to attack the world trade center in 1993 and plot the bombing of landmarks. he's a notorious convicted international terrorist. where is the gap? where are the holes? have we made
, al qaeda, and affiliated groups. the question i have regarding this case, is there any association between these two individuals and the groups i just named to allow enemy combatant status to be conferred upon the suspect in boston. >> don, you and i were talking about this a lot last week as the investigation was unfolding. >> right. >> what is your reaction to that? >> i -- it seems to be that there is a notion among certain people in congress that having a criminal justice system that is effective is incompatible with gathering intelligence. we've seen so many cases where they both can work together. for example, the david hadley case, faisal shahzad, naisul. all of these guys have been convicted in federal criminal court, and all of these guys have been intelligence bonanzas to the intelligence community. if done smartly, you can have your cake and eat it too. i think sometimes there is a misconception it's either all intelligence or all criminal, and never the two shall meet, and that's wrong. >> center for constitutional rights has been working for years since 9/11 in the wak
we learned on 9/11, as you learned well, is that al-qaeda, for example, works in waves. that is they want multiple attacks at one time to create the maximum amount of chaos. some said there seems to be similarities between the london and madrid bombings, mr. secretary. there are certain patterns you put together with certain groups and some people are more likely to claim credit than others? >> we are wait to go see if somebody claims credit. but you are right, the madrid bombings and the bombings in '05 in london, multiple attacks in public places, there one was the underground and the other was the public transportation system in madrid. so you get a sense, as we find out more and more information about more and more explosive devices, the delay between the first explosion and the second. once we know about the detonating device, it has to be for sophisticated than some of us perhaps thought initially, that it's morph a coordinated attack than any of us may have thought after the first hour of the incident. >> one more question, additional officers immediately were se
terrorist attacks. that's why al qaeda has now morphed and in many ways, al qaeda is more dangerous than it was prior to 9/11 because they've metastasized into mini groups and they also have supporters here in the u.s., some of whom they work with over the internet, others are self-radicalized. the times square bomber in 2010. the subway bomber in 2009. there was nothing on these people at all. yet they were involved in terrorist attacks. and any number of other people who have been stopped operating out of their basement, putting bombs together. yeah, it's a different level of threat. different type of threat. >> what's the line on security and freedom whether it comes to trying to secure americans from a lone wolf without disrupting their freedoms? >> yeah. listen, i don't -- my idea that the right to privacy is when you are in a private setting. if you're out in public, i don't believe you have the right to assume that anything is private. that's why i believe having these cameras on street corners the way they have in london, the way they have in lower manhattan in new york and they'
copied bombs from an al qaeda website. we're joined by former u.s. attorney general mr. alberto gonzalez, now counsel at the nashville law firm of waller and lanzaen. thank you, sir. we appreciate it very much. i want to ask you, do you buy this story they acted independently. are you yourself satisfied with this story? >> well, i'm not satisfied, because the investigative work hasn't been completed. and so i still think we're in the process of gathering information. it is possible that these individuals learned this technique over the internet. and they got lucky. unlucky for obviously some boston residents. but, again, i think it's too early to speculate in terms of whether or not did they act alone. i think there is more work to be done here. >> i mean, the whole business here -- let me just run a couple things by you. first of all, this very unusual -- obviously, this guy is in bed, he's in the hospital, he got shot up. so he's not answering questions, right. he's nodding his head and they're getting written responses. how much does that interfere with the quality of information that
descriptions online about how to build a pressure-cooker bomb, including this detailed one posted in an al qaeda internet publication. april is also a month with significance for domestic terror groups. the month of the waco raid and the oklahoma city bombing. as president obama made clear today, there's still no evidence of who is responsible for this act of terrorism. >> this was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. >> reporter: the fbi agents tell us they have tons of video, and somewhere in there will be a picture of the person who planted these two bombs, diane. >> speaking of pictures, i want to ask you about a photo that everybody was e-mailing today. it is a man standing up on top of a roof. you can move in there, you see it right there. what do you know about it? >> reporter: well, it's very intriguing, but authorities say they're giving it no special priority. it's one of many tips and leads they're following. they're really focusing on the person who had that unusually heavy black bag th
in terror bombings. instructions for making them appear on the internet including just last month in an al qaeda magazine "inspire." investigators say the explosive in boston was most likely smokeless powder, gunpowder like this, available at sporting goods store, not something more powerful like dynamite. and they believe the bombs were carried to the scene in dark nylon bags and set off by timers. the fbi is examining photos like this from nbc affiliate whdh to see if nylon bags might have been placed on trash bags on the sidewalk to appear less conspicuous. a former bomb investigator says the experts know what to look for. >> they are able to recognize the minute pieces of an recall that a civilian wouldn't even know what it was, but a bomb investigator like fbi or atf will say, that's from a clock. that's from a battery. >> reporter: boston police say the area was checked twice for bombs yesterday, but there was no security screening. >> because there is unrestricted access to the race course, simply because it's 28 miles long, people can come and go and bring items in and out. >> repo
, fox not reporting it but a lot of people say there was no kind of chatter as far as with al qaeda terrorists like they had chatter before a lot of the other explosions in london and also in spain. there was chatter going on like something was going to happen. they said as far as i heard that there was not much of that and i don't know if you know about that, bill. >> and haven't heard any of that. i would suspect that the joint terrorism task force that is the multi agency getting intelligence from even international sources, if there was something, they would have been probably putting people under watch if they thought that peopleould be involved in some way. >> to bo's point here, if we were getting chatter, i would expect our intelligence agencies, we would be referring to the c.i.a., state department intelligence, my feeling would be that, you know, thi many years after september 11, there would have been a tremendous response. >> we've had it in new york city. whenever there was chatter or anything like that, all of a sudden, you would see security ramped up. as we sit here
now as to the fundamental question, domestic or forren? >>> there's some reporting that al qaeda linked magazine "inspire" had techniques how to make a bomb matched this was done. anybody could have figured out how to do this. anything you have heard given you an indication of domestic versus foreign, inspiration or origination? >> personally, from the very beginning, i tended to lean toward domestic. i have been at international bombings overseas on several occasions running the investigation. i've been in the u.s. also running them. and what you have here is if your expertise is on middle east terrorism, every bombing tended to look like that, it has hallmarks of middle east terrorism. if your expertise is domestic, then it's domestic. it has the hallmarks of both and neither. you don't have a group claiming credit. but on the other hand, the material being used, especially roofing nails or carpenter nails used that's how the atlanta 1996 centennial park bombing was put together, a pipe bomb with food container with nails in it and one of the nails struck a woman and killed her
they are warriors. >> we've decimated al qaeda, gone years without a successful attack. >> and one of the best tools we've had is through law enforcement, through the hundreds of terrorism prosecutions in our courts. >> when terrorism is on the table as a policy matter, right, no one ever argues for cost-benefit analysis, how much should we do. everyone says we should not tolerate a single death from terrorism. here's congressman peter king, essentially, making that argument, that kind of argument yesterday. >> i don't -- my idea that the right to privacy is in a private setting. if you're out in public, i don't think you have the right to assume anything's private. >> you're not concerned we're going to overly secure, make it so going to a sporting event becomes almost impossible? >> ask the parents of the 8-year-old -- ask somebody who's lost somebody in a terrost incident, would you rather have a loved one dead or camera on the telephone pole, i think they'd take the camera. >> that's the argument, right, would you rather have your loved one dead or a camera on a telephone pole, i think they'd ta
, captured on an enemy battlefield. we don't have any evidence he's part of an al qaeda cell or been foreign directioned here. it's possible that could materialize but i think it is very hasty tore calling for his treatment as an enemy combatant. moreover, we haven't had much success in trying enemy combatants in our military commissions. criminal courts have been much more successful in the expeditious prosecution of terrorists. so this rush to want to proclaim him an enemy combatant and get embroiled in a system, frankly, that the supreme court has had problems with time after time, i think is a mistake. >> so representative, how then do you think he should be prosecuted? just as any other u.s. citizen in a civilian court? >> well, i think what the administration and law enforcement have done thus far is they should be doing, that is rely on this public safety exception to miranda that allows them to get information that make sure the public is safe to make sure are there other plots, other bombs an they should make use of that. i think the courts will liberally interpret that and allow th
as the taliban, al qaeda and affiliated groups. the question i have regarding this case, is there any affiliation between these two individuals and the groups i just named to allow enemy combatant status to be conferred. >> we are listening to a presser from senator graham. he takes issue with tigs ma's decision not to declare dzhokhar tsarnaev an enemy combatant. earlier today, jay carney at the daily briefing for the white house says that the suspect will not be treated as an enemy combatant. they will prosecute this terrorist go their words, through civilian system of justice under u.s. law. we saw within the last hour, the charges filed against dzhokhar tsarnaev, the 19-year-old suspected bomber. he has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property at the boston marathon resulting in the deaths of three people and injuries to more. our own pete williams is looking over the charges and getting more information. meanwhile we have new information regarding the parents of the two suspected bott bombers. according to the father of the suspected bombers will trav
safe and were going to do different attacks. a lot of terrorist organizations like al qaeda will train people to attack like in east affect, they don't give them an exit plan and they wind up doing this stuff on their own. they don't care if they get caught. they want them to go after a community or a neighborhood. then they want them to fight to the death in the end because it makes for great press. >> do you think the next target was boston or some are speculating new york city or some place else? >> i don't know. you know, possibly locally. because they didn't move. i wouldn't have been surprised if they did something else in boston. the point of the matter is these groups see it as disposable. they're there to extract maximum violence, if they die, they die. they don't carant them. they care about causing violence against us. i am concerned, of course, there was direction, control, lonlistic am support from the outside that this is not over and we need to know the intentions of the chechens. the only way you would have gotten it is with sus stained contact with this other brother,
the al qaeda nuts, now are sighing that the kind of attraction this is and that's scary to me. melissa: bo, thanks so much. we'll squeeze in a quick break. don't go away. we have a lot more after this. if you've got it, you know how hard it can be to breathe and man, you know how that feels. copd includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. spiriva is a once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that helps open my obstructed airways for a full 24 hours. you know, spiriva helps me breathe easier. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better. does br
of the story; that a group of people from this group, al qaeda, put innocent people in a position to have to do that. >> stahl: when you think about what terrorism means, this really says it. >> alice greenwald: absolutely. it's an impossible thing for a human being to do to another human being, and yet it became possible on 9/11. so, for us not to acknowledge that would be to not be true to the story. >> stahl: but how? with video of people falling, or photographs? and what about the feelings of family members? greenwald told us that she knows that some will never want to see an exhibit on this subject, but many argued strongly that it had to be there. >> alice greenwald: i have to say that we were also... i... i don't want to say accosted-- that's a little strong-- but, you know, shaken by the lapels by family members who said, "you have to tell the story. don't whitewash the story. tell it like it was. the world needs to know." >> joe daniels: so, we ultimately decided that we will include an exhibit, but do it in a way, in an alcov where people will be clearly warned. and if ty don'ntse or
in counterterrorism includes work on the al qaeda bombing of the u.s.s. coal in 2000. >> something just blew up. reporter: mcfadden believes the number one priority of investigators is to be sure there are no accomplices still at large. >> are there other events coming? what other events are planned and doing everything possible to rule out that there could be other terrorist acts in place and do everything possible to disrupt that. >> reporter: as for the surviving brother, dzhokhar tsarnaev, a gunshot wound to his neck currently prevents him from speaking. investigators believe it may have been self-inflicted, a possible suicide attempt. needless to say, many want to hear what he has to say including massachusetts governor deval patrick. >> i think all of the law enforcement professionals are hoping for a host of reasons that the suspect survives because we have a million questions. >> reporter: in a controversial move, the justice department plans to begin questioning tsarnaev before reading him his miranda rights, saying investigators need immediate information on any attacks that may be in
this? what kind of groups don't-- >> that's a great question because, for example, september 11th al qaeda never took responsibility, it took weeks before we traced it back to them. we were focused on who were the suicide bombers. so, i think that's not unusual for the group not to take responsibility and i think with your point about the police are not commenting, we're not going to say anything further. that's the right thing, because there are other people involved. maybe in the united states, maybe abroad. you don't want them to know anything about your investigation. stuart: we demand information, but that's the last thing they should be putting out. that's the truth. kt mcfarland, thank you. >> thank you. stuart: the first reports of the boston bombings did not come from leading news organizations, they came from twitter and facebook. victims and witnesses posting about it literally seconds after the explosions. and is this the future of reporting? well, we're on that story 10:35 this morning. to the big board, we're still shy of 100 point rebound. 94 points higher still shy of
